COL BKB Indiana State 76 Creighton 57

TERRE HAUTE, Ind., Feb. 6 (UPI) -- Jake Odum hit 7-of-9 from the field and scored 22 points Wednesday in pushing Indiana State to a surprisingly lopsided 76-57 win over No. 13 Creighton.

Indiana State closed the first half on a 19-5 run to take charge and pulled away in the second period to slow down Creighton's would-be march to the Missouri Valley Conference title.

Creighton now leads Indiana State and Wichita State by a game at the top of the league race.

The Sycamores (15-8, 8-4 MVC) hit half their field goal attempts and turned the ball over just five times. R.J. Mahurin added 17 points for Indiana State and Manny Arop had 13.

Creighton (20-4, 9-3) was led by Will Artino with 13 points. The Bluejays had won three in a row after dropping two straight.

COL BKB Okla State 69 Baylor 67 OT

STILLWATER, Okla., Feb. 6 (UPI) -- A block by Mike Cobbins and an ensuing layup by Markel Brown that beat the overtime buzzer Wednesday gave No. 24 Oklahoma State a 69-67 win over Baylor.

The Cowboys survived an upset bid in their first appearance since shocking Kansas last weekend.

It was the fourth straight win for Oklahoma State (16-5, 6-3 Big 12 Conference), which managed the victory despite shooting only 36 percent and hitting a mere 3-of-21 from long range.

Pierre Jackson hit two free throws with Baylor with 7 seconds left in regulation to force overtime and the Bears took the early lead in the extra period.

After the Cowboys came back to tie it, it appeared Baylor would take the lead again when A.J. Walton took a pass under the rim. His layup attempt, however, was blocked by Cobbins and Brown broke loose at the other end for a layup with two-tenths of a second remaining.

Marcus Smart led the Cowboys with 14 points and Brown had 13. Jackson led Baylor (14-8, 5-4) with 24 points.
